My Creative Space


I'm not creating anything today. I've just been doing a little test run on my handbag display for the market on Saturday.

My BIL made this hanging rack out of an old queen bed frame. I've only used it once, and it's been sitting in the garage ever since, so I thought it was high time to dust it off and make sure that I can still put it together.

Four screws and an allen key is all it takes (Note to self: DO NOT forget allen key).


Everything else is packed up into containers, ready to be stacked into the car Friday morning.

I've never been ready for a market this early before.... there's gotta be something wrong! What have I forgotten???

Sometimes you need a break, Cam.

Those fabrics look wonderful together ... in fact, I love that whole photo ... the bunting and wall hangings.

New header too? Or have I been away for a while? Looking good all 'round, though!

Don't worry, you'll get used to being ready for these events early with time to relax and prepare ;)

I have always thought those stands look cool but have been too lazy to figure out how to make them, Lucky you to have one made. Yay! It really makes a difference I think for visual. Awesome

Naturally Carol said...

That's a great idea, it will give your marketspace a lot of height. I love the bunting too, threading its way through the top of the bags.

Love the handbag display. And speaking from experience forgetting the allen key is bad. Very bad!

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

That's a great idea for a display! I always struggled finding a cool way to show off my bags when I sold them at markets. Best of luck for the weekend and don't forget the allen key!

Our allen keys are on a ring, slip it on your key chain now so you don't forget it... and, keep a spare in your console, just in case!

Those handbags are absolutely gorgeous. There's no way I could walk past those at a fair. I'd have to put at least two of them on my shoulder and walk around a bit.

I like to leave my works of art that I create all over the house. I find that this gives me more ideas of new things to create. Putting all my art in boxes ruins my creativity and also stops me from enjoying what I created.
